What is the difference between the 19-38 Drum Sander and the 19-38 Combo Sander?

The 19-38 Drum Sander is an open-ended drum sander only; the drum is not interchangeable with any heads. The 19-38 Combo can be equipped with different brush heads for profile sanding (flatter brush head), distressing (wire brush head), cleaning reclaimed wood (nylon brush head), and sanding flat stock with a drum. The 19-38 Combo machine is equipped with an AC Inverter that allows the brushes to be run at variable speeds, whereas the 19-38 Drum Sander only runs at a constant speed.

Can I convert the 19-38 Drum Sander into a brush machine like the 19-38 Combo?

Although they look similar, no, it’s not possible to convert the 19-38 Drum Sander into a brush sander. The 19-38 Drum Sander is not equipped with an AC Inverter, which allows the brush heads to be run at variable speeds. The casting of the 19-38 Combo machine is also different from that of the 19-38 Drum. If you feel you want the option of using a drum and a brush, we recommend the 19-38 Combo machine.

Can I convert my 110V machine into 220V?

No. The conveyor motor and variable speed control (where applicable) are voltage-specific.

What is the difference between your drum sanders and other brands?

Intellisand automatically adjust feed speed to help prevent burning of stock. They also increase abrasive life and prevent damaging sander if “over fed”, set too deep or stock is thicker in middle or end.

All SuperMax® sander have infinitely adjustable conveyor feed rates for precise settings.

All SuperMax® sanders use a self-cooling drum which effectively dissipates heat from sanding, thus extending abrasive life, reducing the chance of burning and prevents over-heating and warping of the drum.

All SuperMax® drum sanders are precision engineered for long life.

All SuperMax® sanders use a computer balanced drum(s) and drive train components to prevent ripple on the surface of stock being processed and to extend life of bearings and other parts.

All SuperMax® drum sanders use an exclusive abrasive conveyor belt which offers the best grip and no-give grip to stock being sanded.

All SuperMax® drum sanders use a patented self-tightening abrasive attachment system, making the common task of changing abrasives fast, simple and tool free.
